How Much Korean Do I Use On An Average Day in Seoul?

I was really nervous coming to Korea for the first time because I wasn't fluent in Korean.


I wanted to make this to show you how much I use on a daily basis to give you an idea about how much you should try to learn :)


I hope its helpful!!!I hope its helpful!!!

Here are a few basic things to learn~

Ordering Food and Drinks:

__명이에요. (한명이에요, 두명이에요) - One person, two people.

When you walk into a cafe or restaurant they'll ask how many people need a table~

____주세요 - please give me

Just say the food/drink you want + juseyo!

계산이에요~ - i'd like to pay

you usually pay up front in the restaurant instead of waiting for a check at your table so you can get up and say this to get their attention :)

Travel Words:

이번역은 - this station is

all subways and most buses will announce the stops in english but if you want to train your ear, listen for this phrase in korean :)

왼쪽/오른쪽 - left/right

very helpful for directions obviously^^

Random Tips:

I used to be really afraid of speaking Korean because I didn't want to make a mistake, but then I saw how many people here tried their best to speak English to me and it didnt bother me at all that it wasnt absolutely perfect. I was so impressed that they knew so much English! Thats when I realized that people dont care if you make mistakes, its amazing that you can even form a small sentence so just go for it! Learning any little bit of a foreign language is an accomplishment and you should be proud even if you can only say 'hello' and 'thank you.'


My Korean level has improved so much just because I have pushed myself and tried. and tbh, i've made a lot of mistakes and people correct me and i never forget it again hahaha

Good luck to all those studying Korean!!!

A Nigerian writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie will receive Harvard University’s W.E.B. Du Bois Medal on October 6th, 2022. This marks another return to Harvard for Chimamanda, who was the Harvard College Class Day Speaker in 2018, and was previously a Harvard Radcliffe Institute Fellow (2011-2012). The Hutchins Center for African and African American Research announced in The Harvard Gazette that Chimamanda, alongside six other honourees, will receive the medal as people “who embody the values of commitment and resolve that are fundamental to the Black experience in America”. Other honourees include basketball legend, cultural critic, and activist Kareem Abdul-Jabbar; and ground-breaking actress Laverne Cox. University Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr., director of the Hutchins Center, in an official statement, said this year’s honourees represent “Unyielding commitment to pushing the boundaries of representation and creating opportunities for advancement and participation for people who have been too often shut out from the great promise of our times.” Chimamanda has received global recognition for her work, which has been translated into over thirty languages and won numerous awards and prizes. She occupies a unique position combining a number of attributes. The New York Times T Magazine in its 2017 ‘Greats’ issue, described her as ‘one of those rarest of people: a celebrated novelist who has also become a leading public intellectual’. Chimamanda is also a fashion and beauty icon and continuously promotes Nigerian designers, including through her ‘Wear Nigerian’ initiative. She was selected as the face of beauty brand Boots No7, and has been featured in numerous style publications including Vanity Fair’s ‘International Best-Dressed List’; and on the covers of British Vogue and Marie Claire Brazil amongst others. Barack Obama called her “one of the world’s great contemporary writers”; and Hillary Clinton has written that “she has the rare ability to sum up even the biggest societal problems swiftly and incisively”. Her first novel, Purple Hibiscus (2003), won the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize. Her second, Half Of A Yellow Sun (2006), won the Orange Prize for Fiction (subsequently the Bailey’s Prize, and now the Women’s Prize for Fiction) – the world’s most prestigious annual book award for fiction by a woman. In 2015, Half Of A Yellow Sun received the Bailey’s ‘Best of the Best’ award, selected from the ten winners of the prize during its second decade. Her third novel, Americanah (2013) won the US National Book Critics Circle Award – the most respected literary award in the US, being that winners are selected by professional book critics – and was also named one of the New York Times Top 10 Best Books of the year. In 2018, she was awarded the PEN Pinter Prize, named after Nobel Laureate Harold Pinter, given annually to a writer of “outstanding literary merit who shows a fierce intellectual determination.” She chose to share the Pinter prize with imprisoned Saudi lawyer and human rights activist Waleed Abulkhair. She was named one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World in 2015, and Fortune Magazine named her one of the World’s 50 Greatest Leaders in 2017. In 2018, she received the Global Hope Coalition’s Thought Leadership Award, and the Action Against Hunger Humanitarian Award. Chimamanda has received 16 honorary doctorate degrees from some of the world’s leading universities;http://iprojectmaterials.com
